NGB Releases Crop Trends Report

The new 2021-2022 Crop Trend Report from National Garden Bureau provides a historical view of crop performance — information that many in the plant industry have been requesting for years. 

As part of its mission to Inspire, Connect and Grow, National Garden Bureau‘s inaugural 2021-2022 Crop Trend Report intends to provide plant and seed brokers/distributors, growers and retailers an insider’s view on crop trends necessary to make business decisions based on insights from the plant breeding community.

Unlike market research firms that glean information from public sources, the crop trends presented in this report are based on data provided by the very same companies breeding, producing, and marketing these crops.

The data used to compile this report comes from the three breeder-producer market share surveys National Garden Bureau has been conducting for over 30 years. From this information, NGB has taken the opportunity to create a high-level summary of crop trends for the benefit of all channel partners.

Commentary for each crop has been provided by the survey participants who are subject matter experts. The commentary underscores the trend line with insights on breeding direction and market changes.

In this inaugural year, the 2021-2022 Crop Trend Report includes details on 20 annual crops, 14 perennial crops, 10 shrubs, 12 edibles and two seasonal crops.

These details will allow NGB, their survey participants and Crop Trend Report purchasers to guide the dialogue about our industry’s health and vigor. 

A member discount is available. For this discount, please consider joining National Garden Bureau to support the industry’s only non-profit ambassador for gardening. Five membership tiers are described on the NGB website. For more information on membership, contact Diane Blazek or Membership Coordinator Gail Pabst
